THE GAME OF HOPE – a title fit for a great novel! The game was conceived by Johann Kaspar Hechtel and published in Nuremberg in 1799. It was a parlour game, a game with everyday situations with all their significance and twists. This is where we meet all the characters seen later in the Lenormand cards: the rider, the snake, the ship, the house, the bears, the ring, the coffin, the cross, etc.
The booklet includes the historic game rules and instructions how to read this oracle today.
